An ordinance performed in the temple eternally uniting a husband and wife, or children and their parents.
For LDS families, an adoption is not complete at finalization. There is a kind of spiritual finalization as well. We call it a sealing and it means that Leo is now a part of our family, not only on this earth and in this life, but in the world and life to come.
|Saturday was a very special day for our family, Leo was sealed to us for eternity.|
|Many members of our family traveled from Utah and Oregon to be at the Seattle Temple with us.|
|Leo was adorable, a perfect angel, and seemed pretty darn happy about the level of attention he was getting.|
|John Henry looked dashing dressed all in white. He had been talking about going to the temple to seal Leo to our family for a few weeks now. He was so excited to actual go. He was reverent in the temple, and having our children in the sealing room was a sacred experience beyond description.|
